Low Water Pressure In Houses

Saturday, May 7, 2016 - Posted by MPD Mississauga Plumbers, in Mississauga Plumbing

 When a home has water pressure that is too low it can seem like every task must be completed in slow motion. It’s hard to rinse the dishes or even your hair, and appliances like washing machines take forever to fill on each cycle.

The flushing operation of a toilet is not affected since a properly filled tank is all it needs for a good flush, but it may seem to take forever for the tank to fill back up after a flush. If you notice the symptoms at more than one location in the home, then the pressure coming into the home may be insufficient.

Possible Causes Of Low Water Pressure

A low water pressure situation could appear out of thin air and you are on a municipal water supply, it may be a neighbourhood-wide problem. To follow up on this, check with neighbours or the water supplier to see if anyone else is experiencing a similar problem which indicates a problem in their system and not your home. Always take extra precaution and call a local licensed plumber to verify the problem of the low water pressure. If you live in the Peel area, call Mississauga plumber Mayfield Plumbing & Drains for all your low water pressure problems and solutions.

If it is only in your home and all areas are affected, the problem may be with a pressure regulator if your home is large enough it may have one installed. These are normally installed in the water supply system before it reaches the house, so may be found near the water meter or in the home mechanical room.

Those using well water, either an individual well or community well, are likely to find the problem with a pressure tank or a gauge. If the problem is with the well itself or the water pump, the end result is more likely to be no water at all than low pressure, so the well is rarely the culprit when the pressure is simply weak.

Other Possible Causes Of Low Water Pressure

Even when the incoming water pressure is adequate, it is still possible to have pressure problems. The best way to determine the cause is to check all the water outlets inside the house to determine if they are all affected or only some. In low water pressure in home situations, it is always best to call a local licensed plumber to help correctly diagnoses the reason for the low water pressure problem and how to correctly fix it. The pressured water supply system in a home is a serious matter and best left to the licensed professionals.

Pipes that have become filled with mineral deposits may finally reach a point where the pressure is reduced throughout the house. When replacing old pipes, it is sometimes amazing to see how much material can be inside a pipe that still functions and people often wonder, upon seeing the old pipes, how they had any pressure at all. So, the problem can get pretty severe before it is actually noticed. Many old parts of the GTA and surrounding with older homes may still have galvanized steel pipes that corrode over time and produce low water pressure problems. To replace and update old piping to new, call Mayfield Plumbing & Drains or your local area licensed plumber.

However, if a seeming whole-house problem develops rather suddenly, this often happens after some disruption in the water supply, even when it was a planned repair. If you have noticed recent construction or street work in your neighbourhood, then some very small material may have come through the pipes and plugged the water service supply.

If you can see a crack near the end of your faucet, then it probably has an aerator and this can easily be removed and cleaned. When the end is attached too tightly to remove with your hand, place a rubber glove or something similar between the faucet and a pair of pliers or wrench to protect the faucet while you turn and remove the end piece. Make a note of how the pieces fit together so you know how to put it back together. Again, DIY is not always the safest route, even on minor plumbing repairs; it is highly recommended to leave all home plumbing problems to the certified plumber professionals.

Sometimes a minor pressure problem can seem larger than it is if the home already has water-saving devices installed, especially if they become clogged for some reason. If the problem persists and the cause cannot be determined at this point, it is time to have a licensed plumber help with further trouble-shooting to be certain that the pressure is adequate for appliances to function properly without damage.
